Research Assistantship at Ghent University

The department plant systems biology at Ghent University has an opening for an ambitious and energetic Research Assistant in research group Plant Systems Modeling, that focuses on computational modeling of plant developmental biology.

The Research Assistant will be building and analyzing dynamical models of lateral root initiation, in close collaboration with molecular biologists in the research group.

This project gives the opportunity to get a Ph.D in systems biology.

Funding is available for four years, but you are encouraged to apply for external funds.

The ideal candidate holds an MSc in applied mathematics, physics or computer science with interest and affinity for biology, or an MSc in Biology or Biotechnology with interest and affinity for numeric mathematics and computer science.

Programming experience (C++ or similar) and experience in biological modeling (differential equations/cell-based modeling) are a big plus.
